“warm, inviting and secluded”
Reviewed November 26, 2006

We spent three nights over Thanksgiving in the Log House at the taste of Alaska Lodge Lodge. The facility could not have been nicer or more cozy. It is roughly 30 minutes from the airport, and easy to find in good weather. In bad weather it might take a little more time. It is out of town and away from light pollution though there is clearly light in the distance. It is not enough to distract.

Cory (son of the owners) kept the refrigerator stocked with food, juice and snacks, and the cabin lacked for nothing. In spite of -20 degree temperatures, the hand built cabin was warm and snug. The window facing their glen provided a limited view of the Auroras, but to really observe them you need to hike out into the field and face the cabin.

Cooper, the resident dog, visited regularly and came along when we hiked the property Thanksgiving morning. It's a great property, and the views are spectacular.

There is a master bedroom downstairs, as well as the second bedroom with twin beds. There is also an indoor jacuzzi downstairs, plus a sink and a second half bath. The oil heater sits at the base of the stairs and kept the cabin cozy around the clock.

There is an extension cord to plug into your car block heater overnight.

Highly recommended for a quiet, authentic getaway in the unique landscape of remote Alaska. it's close enough to town to get what you need, but far enough away to see the sky fully. And the hosts are just splendid people.

They provide wireless internet access so you can fire up and work in a hand built cabin, in -20 degree weather with no other homes or people in sight - if that suits you.

Very mellow, very well done.

  • Liked — the location and the friendly personnel
  • Tips/Secrets — for best Aurora viewing, plan for Feb-Mar but dress for -30 or lower.

I stayed in the Taste of Alaska's log cabin for three nights in February. The cabin was very nice and had plenty of room. It inlcuded an indoor jacuzzi and a well-stocked kitchen. Breakfast was dropped off the night before and typically included fruit, pastry, orange juice and a hot dish (to be reheated in the microwave oven).

I stayed there to catch the Northen Lights which I saw two of the three nights that I was in Fairbanks.
Overall I was very pleased with the Taste of Alaska. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the Fairbanks area.

A Taste of Alaska lodge was recommended to me from a dog musher in Fairbanks. I told her that I wanted to stay in an "Alaskan" place, and she told me about A Taste of Alaska Lodge. When I travel I like to avoid the chains and stay in places that complement the destination. Debbie Eberhardt is the proprietor of the lodge and the land has been in the Eberhardt family since they homesteaded the area years ago. Her husband built the lodge. They are both friendly and willing to offer suggestions on what to do while in town, good places to eat, and great places to see the Northern Lights (one of the best Aurora's I've seen in my life was 150 feet from my room at their lodge), one of Fairbanks's biggest attractions during the winter months. The rooms are very clean, the breakfast Debbie makes guests each morning is excellent, and the views of the Alaska Range and Denali are right out your window (on a clear day).

I was amazed that such a quality place was right here in Alaska. When we drove up, we looking into the spacious, beautiful mountains of the Alaska Range directly in front of us. The tall snow capped mountains will take your breath away any time of the year. The staff was professional and really provided a rare insight into the mystic land of the last frontier. Rivers and forrests are all across the valley and on the far side is the awesome Alaska Range. There is a bonus. In the dead of winter you have a front row seat for the Northern Lights.All of this only a short drive from downtown Fairbanks. We are greatful the staff and owners for sharing this very special place with fellow alaskans and the world.
